Packaging Solutions>Paper Pallet

The most common ISO standard pallet measures (view available sizes below) 100 by 120 by 12 cm (which means slightly less than 40 inches by 48 inches by 5 inches). It weighs 15 to 21 kilos empty. Most pallets can easily handle a load of 1,000 kilos. The gradual advent of containers for the transport of nearly all goods has spurred the use of pallets because the containers always offer the clean, level surfaces needed to make pallet movement economical. The common ISO standard pallets also fit neatly into common ISO containers, which in turn fit neatly on container ships, trains and trucks.
